Manchester United are ready to increase their offer for Barcelona player Frenkie de Jong this month.
United declared interest in the Dutch international after Erik ten Hag’s took charge of the United squad ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
However, the only issue in the deal was finances, with reports from The Guardian claiming United are confident of securing a compromise soultion.
Football espana reported that Barcelona rejected a €60m offer from the Premier League giants last week with the Catalans determined to hold out for around €85m after spending €75m to bring him to the club in 2019.
United are ready to raise their offer to around €70m, alongside a major salary increase for de Jong, but that could be their ceiling in the negotiations.
Barcelona’s financial concerns could force their hand in the talks and they are expected to drop their asking price to avoid another summer of transfer issues.
